The facts of who Kate is immediately make her Batwoman origin story different and intriguing. Rose, a once controversial choice for the role, does her best to reveal the flickers of pain underneath Kate's steadfast stoicism.

The New York Times

Sufficiently well executed, with touches of quiet wit, but tinny and lacking in personality or excitement overall. It's a superheroics delivery system, most notable for its efficiency.

Batwoman really sings when it's building the adversarial relationship between Kate and Alice, an opposite-sides-of-the-coin situation with similar vibes to Batman and the Joker.

Batwoman is sharp and fun, full of mythology and unexpectedly easy to explore.

It's easy enough to watch that I'll stick around to see if it blossoms into something more.

It's a textureless, bland, hollow performance that mutes the character's potential to evolve into something more intriguing.

The Guardian

The Guardian

Maybe when things improve a bit, or we get used to a new normal, it will be possible to care about the fact that Batwoman's plot is ridiculously slight, that her character is woefully underdeveloped and overtly presented as the real Batman's stand-in.

Batwoman's second episode doesn't do much to fix the issues that emerged in the pilot, but its willingness to throw caution to the wind with plot feels in line with the other Arrowverse shows. I'm still not hooked, but I'll stick around for more.
